    • Total Nutrient Admiztures
    • 3 in one: dextrose, AA's and lipids
  49. Transition feeding from PN 
    • Introduce a min amount of FULL-STRENGTH enteral feeding at a low rate (30-40) to get GI tolerance
    • decrease PN as you increase enteral rate by 25-30 every 8-24 hours
    • when pt can tolerate 75% of needs, d/c the PN
  50. Re-feeding Syndrome
    • aggressive adimin of nutrition to malnourished
    • starved cells take up nutrients, pot and phos shift to intracellular compartments
    • results in hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia, hypomagnesemia

    overfeeding PN and dextrose >5 mg/kg/min may lead to hyperglycemia
